A Taxing Day .....

Hi there and happy Friday!  Hope you have your taxes completed by now - or at least by Mon - the extended deadline.  (What's up with that anyway?)  It's always good to get tax season behind ya, huh?  Before you know it, it'll be Christmas again.  Time just flies by at what seems like break neck speed!
OK, enough about taxes and Christmas.  Let's move on to the card for today.  It's a wedding card that was CASE'd from Pam D'Urso (my friend and awesome upline).  Check out her card here (Mar 29th post).  Pam was inspired by Jan Tink.   I didn't have any of the specialty paper they used so I made my own.  Oh, so clever!  The swirl stamp from the "Elements of Style" set was used in a random pattern on Whisper White cardstock using Versamark ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The bells are made from the Round Tab and Wide Oval punches. (You can also use a circle punch to round off the tops of the bells.)   The Swirls Scribbles Sizzlet die was used for the curly clappers.  Some Organza and Pearls dress it up very nicely.
